2000 ~ The Monterey Bay Science Project
The National Science Foundation Grant which funded the Language Acquisition in Science Education at Rural Schools comes to and end but LASERS continues to thrive through the Monterey Bay Science Project (MBSP). Life Lab becomes a MBSP host site and receives funding through the California State Science Project, the UC Office of the President, and state education funds. MBSP uses innovative approaches to train science educators.
MBSP continues the LASERS model and additionally trains educators via science institutes, an annual conference, and peer coaching.
